NORFOLK, NE - The Spring Career Fair at Northeast Community College in Norfolk, open to all Northeast students and alumni, will attract a large number of employers again this year. Representatives from approximately 90 companies, agencies and organizations will take part in the event on Wednesday, March 13, from 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m., in the Cox Activities Center gymnasium.

Terri Heggemeyer, director of career services at Northeast, said the event gives students and alumni the chance to have a personal conversation with prospective employers.

“Employers will be here to talk about a wide variety of employment opportunities. This is a networking event so students are encouraged to present a professional image. In addition, they should bring several copies of their résumé and plan to spend enough time to visit with multiple employers who are looking to fill internships and part-time and full-time positions.”

Heggemeyer said she is pleased that so many employers will take time from their workplaces to come to campus to interact face-to-face with Northeast students.

“Students have the opportunity to learn so much more from a personal conversation with a business representative compared to simply reviewing the company's website and applying online. Through attendance at the Career Fair, students are often exposed to job opportunities and companies that they had never been aware of. I believe this type of interaction can open up new doors to both the businesses and our students."

A wide variety of business and industry will be represented at the Spring Career Fair, including agriculture, manufacturing, retail, criminal justice and technical, among others.

The Northeast Community College Career Services Office offers a variety of services to prepare students for today’s workforce. This includes providing one-on-one advisement and personal attention to students as they look for employment; posts jobs daily to the Northeast on-line job board; assists with writing and completing résumés, cover letters, and applications, and offers lifetime employment assistance to alumni.

Northeast Community College offers over 130 programs and concentrations of study. These include technical, vocational, business, liberal arts, and transfer programs.
